"Generative AI” tools promise to provide us with many good things, but they also provide us with something else: a moral test of sorts.
We may well be on our way to failing the moral test posed by chatbots by ignoring the lessons of our response to the burgeoning dominance of social media that began 20 years ago.
CSRAI Director S. Shyam Sundar shares his perspective in the New York Times on the fast-burgeoning crop of companies that are offering services to detect AI-generated images to help society separate fact from fiction.
The Penn State Center for Socially Responsible Artificial Intelligence awarded more than $212,000 to advance five interdisciplinary research projects as part of its Big Ideas Grant program. Awarded projects feature researchers from six departments across four colleges and institutes.
Showing users that visual data fed into artificial intelligence (AI) systems was labeled correctly might make people trust AI more, according to researchers. The findings may also pave the way to help scientists better measure the connection between labeling credibility, AI performance and trust.
Shomir Wilson, assistant professor in the Penn State College of Information Sciences and Technology, is the recipient of a Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award from the National Science Foundation in recognition of his work, “Large-Scale Exploration and Interpretation of Consumer-Oriented Legal Documents.”
If there’s one rule about rules, it’s that they’re bound to be broken. That goes for life, law, and, on a much more specific note, ChatGPT.
In fact, that rule may go doubly for ChatGPT. As the chatbot’s popularity has ballooned, so too has the uncontrollable urge to make OpenAI’s language model do things it shouldn’t — for example, telling you step-by-step how to build explosives.
In this story from Inverse, CSRAI director S. Shyam Sundar offers his perspective on who is responsible for ensuring a safe experience on ChatGPT.
Given the potential for widespread harm as technology companies roll out new AI systems and test them on the public, policymakers are faced with the task of determining whether and how to regulate the emerging technology. The Conversation asked three experts on technology policy to explain why regulating AI is such a challenge – and why it’s so important to get it right.
Penn State’s Center for Socially Responsible Artificial Intelligence is now offering social responsibility consultations to University researchers engaged in AI-related research.
Penn State’s Center for Socially Responsible Artificial Intelligence is inviting short proposals for a special off-cycle round of "Big Idea Grant" seed funding earmarked for early concepts and research that has transformational potential. Applications will be accepted through May 1, with projects expected to start on July 1 and last for up to two years.
